Earp Cohn P.C. lawyers also provide full-service business counseling for entrepreneurs and other client companies, advancing our client’s objectives through sound legal advice. We work with companies on an ongoing basis, often serving as general counsel throughout the relationship. In these valuable relationships, we are side-by-side with our clients every step of the way, from choosing the appropriate business entity, organization and structure, to growth through merger and acquisition, and thereafter providing advice and guidance on specific transactions.
Our tax practice includes many specialty areas. Attorneys practicing in business, estate planning, and retirement planning use their tax expertise in structuring corporate transactions, such as redemptions, buy-sell agreements, and estate freezes.
The firm’s tax attorneys also structure and design all types of pension and employee benefit plans including deferred compensation plans. The tax aspects of personal, estate, and financial and investment planning are a major focus of our tax practitioners.
